Do You Have a TED Talk in You?

In teaching the art of Relational Presence to those who want to become masterful speakers, I’ve been struck by how participants effortlessly spin out content that has the same impact as a masterful TED Talk. Whether or not you think you have a TED Talk in you, the exercise of accessing and transmitting your wisdom in an effortless way is highly beneficial for your professional confidence. Like Michelangelo who said “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free,” imagine seeing the TED Talk in you and setting it free. I’ve seen enough TED Talks to understand what makes the good ones work so well. The key can be boiled down to segments within the talk that flow from a strong emotion to a teaching in 2-3 minutes.

Public Speakers Need To Know How To Master Time

Time is a funny thing. Before we start to deliver a speech, it can seem as though we have all of the time in the world – how ever are we going to fill up the time that we’ve been given to deliver our speech in? However, once we take the stage or step into the front of the room, time seems to speed up and there never seems to be enough of it. In order to maximize the importance of public speaking, how can we become better at managing this time thing?

What You Can Learn From (Some) Motivational Speakers

I must admit I’m getting a bit tired of motivational speakers. I’ve heard a lot of them and I know quite a few personally, so I’m sorry to have to say it but it’s true. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re the ones who tend to speak about personal development – about how you can achieve whatever you want, about how your attitude determines your success, about breaking free from your limiting beliefs and “going for it”.

Hate How You Sound on a Recording?

10 Top Tips For Using Slides

Nearly everyone who delivers a presentation or training session these days uses slides of some sort. In fact, many people seem to think that’s what a presentation is – a procession of slides for people to look at – or, worse, read! Of course, slides can be a great help (if they’re used well) but many people seem to feel they’re somehow obliged to use them.

Building A Keynote Speech From The Ground Up

I’m not really sure if it is the most difficult type of speech to give, but the keynote speech is where we seem to be in the spotlight for the longest time and provides us with our best opportunity to show off the importance of public speaking. Our audience has high expectations for what we’ll be sharing with them and we really don’t want to let them down. This is a high pressure situation that can cause some public speakers to crack. I was recently asked to deliver a keynote speech and only had a week to get ready to give it. Could I get the speech written in that time?

Public Speaking for Performing Musicians

Summary: How often do we see a performing instrumentalist walk out in front of their audience, gently nod, then without a word competently play their piece, take their bow and vacate the stage. Now in strict academic settings this is expected, for the performer is being technically judged and the room is full of ‘knowledgeable’ colleagues and aficionados. But away from this austere ambience, out in the wider world people not only want to appreciate how clever the performer is, they want a real human-being to talk to them! This inspirational article will show you how.

Tomorrow Is Yesterday

The statement “Tomorrow is Yesterday” would seem to many people to be, at best, a contradiction and, at worst, an absurdity. But if you consider it in a mathematical context, then it might be possible to rephrase it to read “that tomorrows are almost equal to the yesterdays”. This seven minute speech looks at how one might change one’s life for the better. In particular, it looks at how affirmations might be the key to changing the direction of your life. The critique on the speech suggested, even though it was creative and had a clever ending. However, it offered too many ideas for the audience to take in.
